Post-match press conference of Chennaiyin FC player-manager Marco Materazzi and midfielder Bruno Pelissari.
Marco Materazzi :: LIVE COMMENTARY BELOW
(On getting a win after four draws) : I believe we deserved more than a draw in the last three games. So today it was good to get back to winning ways. We may or may not reach the semi-final and final but I am proud of my players because they always stick together as a team.
(On the injuries) : The injuries (Elano-calf, Mendoza-hamstring, Gouramangi-groin) are bad news for us. We will only know the extent of them after the scans tomorrow. But the good thing is we have players to step up from the bench like Bruno today. I must congratulate him for his outstanding performance today.
(On the reason for so many injuries) : I think maybe because we started pre-season late, we are having these injuries because it's not easy to play and recover within a short period. But fortunately we have a big squad with the ones, who are not playing, hungry to prove a point and help the team.
(On not keeping clean sheets) : I prefer winning to clean sheets. I would take today's score in every game, maybe even 3-2. The most important thing is three points.
(On the pressure of replacing Elano) : I never felt any pressure. Every game when I am on the bench, I just wait for my chance. Today the coach gave me an opportunity and I tried to give my best. Thankfully I made a significant contribution.
(On what went through his mind at 1-1) : I just asked Gennaro to get the ball from the back of the net quickly and then asked Mendoza to pass to me. After that it all happened quickly, I don't know how I made it possible but it was a happy ending for us.
We are pleased to inform that Mr. Alex Petroman Da Silveira a Professional Football Player from Brazil and Mr. Aayushmaan Chaturvedi will apply for their registration today 19th November 2014 at 4:00 pm at IFA office.
Mr. Alex is being taken on loan from Bhawanipore Club and Mr. Aayushman Chaturvedi a young prodigy is coming from a Delhi Club.

18.11.2014: CFC Press Release : Pre-match press conference of Chennaiyin FC player-manager Marco Materazzi. Chennaiyin FC takes on FC Pune City on Wednesday at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in Chennai.
(On four straight draws) :: It's not ideal but this happens in football. In a couple of those games we should have won three points but there was one game also where we scored late to earn a point. There is no point looking back now. We have six more finals in the league stage starting tomorrow.
(On the pressure to win home games) :: Pressure is part of life. So we are not bothered by it. We will try to play our best and get maximum points.
( On missed chances against Pune in away game) :: Yes we missed a lot of chances but the good thing was, we created plenty. Hopefully our conversion rate will be better in this match.
( On Elano getting marked by other teams)
I think that's very normal. Elano has already played eight games and despite the tactics and strategies of other teams, he has still managed to score. I am not worried about it.
